* An interesting version in one of IDW's [[ComicBook/TheTransformersMegaseries Transformers comics]], where Shockwave is unable to logically comprehend why the Dynobots (Not ''Dinobots'', not yet anyway) have followed him all the way to Earth for the sake of revenge, and nearly seizes up in the process, which the Dynobots take full advantage of. So Shockwave decides to temporarily shut down his reasoning and see what happens. The [[OutOfTheInferno result]] [[UnstoppableRage are]] [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown scarily]] [[CurbStompBattle effective]].
